Baxter International Inc. recently announced the recipients of its seventh annual Leadership Excellence Awards in Pharmacy (LEAP) at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists 2016 Midyear Meeting.
The awards are given for the improvement of pharmacy work flow processes, efficiency and daily practice outcomes.
“We congratulate these outstanding hospitals for their continued efforts to not only positively impact patient outcomes, but also increase efficiency within their hospital setting,” Phil Rackliffe, global franchise head of Baxter’s Integrated Pharmacy Solutions, said. “With Baxter’s rich history of advancing patient safety, we share common goals in working together for the best outcome for the patients we serve together.”
The LEAP awards program were created in 2010 to honor institutions that were successful in the implementation of pharmacy programs that concentrated on pharmacy practices and initiatives that are more productive and ones that maximize safety and efficiency.
Baxter was instrumental in the establishment of the LEAP Awards to aid in the highlighting of hospital pharmacies with the best practices and those that showcase organizations that use outcomes based on evidence and lean principles to further pharmacy practice. This leads to the overall improvement of operations and care delivery.
